THE SNOWBALL

This cocktail creation looks like a snowball in a blizzard! While it sounds a bit kitschy, sipping “Snowballs” is a great way to bring out the holiday cheer! The drink is made up of part vodka and part ice cider, which adds tastes of vanilla, silky honey, and a bit of oak to the drink. Ice cider originated in Quebec, Canada when apple pickers decided to let their apples hang late into the autumn, actually freezing them. Blend the vodka and ice cider until they are “slushy” and then pour into an ice martini glass. (Yes, a glass made entirely out of ice and available through www.icecaters.com!) Garnish your “Snowball” with a lychee. Absolutely delicious, lychees are a small red heart-shaped Chinese fruit that is sweet and juicy and available in your local oriental market.


Ingredients:

• 2 ounces of Grey Goose Vodka (you can also use Absolut or Stoli vodkas)
• 2 ounces of Ice Cider (a non-fermented alcohol product)
• 1 small lychee
• 1 Ice Martini Glass
 

Instructions:

Put the vodka, Ice Cider, and ice into a blender. Blend on high until it is slushy. Pour cocktail into an Ice Martini Glass and garnish with the lychee. Ice Martini Glasses last about an hour.
